The Really Heavy Greatcoat: Murdoch

John Freeman

The Really Heavy Greactcoat is a long-running cartoon strip which ace artist Nick Miller and I created years ago and published in alternative Lancaster magazine On The Beat and Off the Beat and, later, on virtual-lancaster.

Just occasionally, Nick (who's constantly busy on numerous projects) teases us all with a new and topical episode.
